About Me

*** If you are my partner and are international, please wait to receive your swap for up to 60-days. It takes a significant amount of time for mail/postcards to get from Australia to the rest of the world. Thank you for understanding***

G'day, my name is Krissy, and I live in Canberra - the capital city of Australia.

I am a geologist who is now a science/maths teacher and private tutor. My passion is inspiring the next generation of scientists/engineers by getting girls interested in science and STEM. I have also just started SCUBA diving again too!

My 5-year old daughter collects the postcard from the mails box every day, after she gets home from school. We love getting mail, and I had lots of pen-pals growing up.

. . . Things I like/my hobbies include: Anything Hawaiian themed! Geology: rocks, famous land-forms, volcanoes, huge mountains or minerals. Marine life: SCUBA diving, underwater caves or tropical marine life (like reefs or animals). Sport: ice skating, motor bike riding, rock climbing, geocaching. Science: Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Geology - or anything nerdy. Gardening: Anything related to vegetable gardening or bee-keeping (both a love of mine!)

...

Looking forward to snail mailing :D

Travel

I have traveled to: Hawaii (2018), New Zealand (5 times!) Vanuatu, Isle of Pines, Fiji (5 times!) & surrounding Islands, USA (3 times), England, Wales & France.

I am looking at getting a travel-themed tattoo very soon, but am stuck on an idea for a design!

Favorite Books

I read a lot of gardening books. I recently finished the book 'the German girl', however I didn't enjoy it :( If you can suggest some good non-fiction, I would appreciate it!

Favorite Crafts

-Washi Tape (colored, with patterns or glitter) -Knitting -Crochet -Postcards & Postcard decorating -Puffy and 3D stickers -Glitter stickers -Kawaii stickers or notepads -Stickers -Embroidery iron-on embellishments -Fancy pens -Cursive writing -Wax-paper making

Comment: I know that mail from or to Australia can take up to 6 or even 8 weeks, but you marked the swap sent 5 days late without communication. You marked sent after you were banned from another host on May 5 for having a late swap on your dash. I sent you a PM on May 29 about this issue and the fact that you haven't rated any of your partners yet and that you have another late swap on your dash again (due May 14). At this time your last login was May 5 (the day you marked sent). You now logged in again on June 1 but didn't reply to me message. You only marked the other late swap sent. I'll re-rate when I ever receive the card. BTW: My card to you was sent on April 17.

Comment: So happy to read this line! I haven't read that series for at least ten years. I am intrigued by the plant on the postcard and appreciate that you put the stamp on the front. It could be framed this way.
